I was talking to a new friend the other day (I miss all my classmates!), and we were having an in depth conversation about wine. I was telling her I need to branch out, that I generally stick to dry bold reds. She brought up Rose, which always immediately makes me think of the Zinfandel in the fridges of my childhood. No thanks.
As you can tell by that comparison, I know little about wine, other than what I like.
I like dry, not sweet. Unless the sweet is in natural form, like fruit. I can drink a fruity sangria all afternoon.

We are finally using the serving tray / lazy susan we brought home from Napa last year – made from the top of a wine barrel, and it spins!
